The “Anti-Israel” President is almost out of American politics (or at least the Presidential office). Jews should be celebrating everywhere. Kushner secured Trump the office with dynamic social media capabilities.
Now that a new future has arrived, we must take stock of ourselves. The Jews are “the people of redemption” and therefore must be hyper-sensitive to the times.
Though the press will try to tear down Trump, it’s irrelevant. The press serves to dupe the public and is a mere puppet of bosses who need sound-bites. The press doesn’t craft internal policy. Trump has the final say now and Israel will be the immediate beneficiary.
Trump filled his Israeli diplomatic team with wise and sensitive Orthodox attorneys who know how to engage the world with charm and sophistication. They can be relied upon to complete the Trump-Israel benefit package. That’s a done deal.
As White House advisor, Jared will often be the “first” ear to assess all matters. This is a Jewish blessing. It’s almost like having Esther as the Queen.
We are in year 5777. The Orthodox mind always looks towards numbers to calculate possibilities. The year 7 has tremendous significance in Scripture. The world was created in “7” days, representative of our 6,000 year world and we are now on the horizon to day 7. We wait for day 7 every week to celebrate “Shabbos,” shouldn’t we eagerly await the “final” Shabbos which is almost here?
One might be afraid to want or seek redemption, but then again who wants any more possible loss of Jewish life anywhere in the world. When Mashiach arrives, the other nations of the world will be subjugated to us, as Maimonides clearly enunciates. This is a much better-case scenario than living at the whim of many barbaric terrorists whose murderous rages have been blossoming.
It’s a relief to hear that Rabbi Hier will be delivering an inaugural message. He, unlike anyone else, can understand what this new President means to the Jews. Rabbi Hier’s essence is about never forgetting a “Barbarian” who orchestrated “The Final Solution.” He knows relief has come to a nation.
Let us celebrate and dig deeper to push ourselves to attach ourselves to G-d with greater profundity and reach out to our fellow Jew with greater kindness so that we may celebrate an “eternal” inauguration.
